Meanwhile, back in Virginia (the other "Commonwealth"), my sister, Jaleh K. Slominski, Attorney-at-Law, was voted by the readers of the Lynchburg News and Advance as one of Lynchburg's top two law firms. There are hundreds of law firms in Lynchburg, so this is a real accomplishment. While I was trying to find the story online, I came across another feather in her cap. She gave a presentation on Worker's Compensation in Virginia. The presentation was turned into a book, which is now available on Amazon.com (and it has a 4-Star rating!).
Here's the book description from Amazon.
Workers' compensation related costs are expensive for employers at every step of the process: lost productivity, wages, medical costs, fraudulent claims and administrative costs. Legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act has complicated things even more. How does an employer reduce costs? How does an employer stay in compliance? This manual cannot make your problems and costs go away, but it should help you minimize the expense and headache of workers' compensation claims and improve compliance.Congratulations!
It is designed for human resource professionals, attorneys, safety directors, insurance claims representatives, occupational health nurses, business managers, benefits professionals, risk managers and rehabilitation specialists.
